Nicki Minaj’s husband, Kenneth Petty, will still be on New York’s sex offender registry.
Spotted on The Daily News, Kenneth Petty tried and failed miserably to get off New York’s sex offender registry, according to documents from the Brooklyn Federal Court.
Minaj’s husband was convicted of attempted rape in 1995 by a then 16-year-old Jennifer Hough. In a Brooklyn Federal Court lawsuit, he tried to argue that he never got the opportunity to contest his status as a medium-risk sex offender.
Per The Daily News:
So much for that excuse.
Kenneth Petty Was Allegedly Confused
“We were just going according to his statement, what he’s telling us, that he wasn’t present,” Dov said. “He still says that he wasn’t there, and maybe someone is putting this together just to get him. I don’t think that he purposely lied to us. I just believe maybe he forgot.”
Before announcing they got married, Nicki Minaj spoke about her baby daddy’s rape conviction and defended him, saying, “He was 15, she was 16 … in a relationship. But go awf Internet.”
In an exclusive interview with The Real in 2021, Petty’s victim, Hough, shared the painful details of the rape, where he shoved an object into her and took her to a nearby house where the sexual assault took place.
Last year Petty was sentenced to three years probation for failing to register as a sex offender when the couple relocated to California.
